The same old issue for those who enjoy fashion is raised on January 1st: What should I add to my wardrobe to seem stylish in the months to come? Taking inspiration straight from the spring/summer ’24 runways, we have a plethora of options for you if you’re ready for this kind of wardrobe revamp. Think of this compilation as your sneak peek at the 2024 fashion trends that will be hot on clothes racks, online shopping carts, and social media feeds alike, allowing you to plan your purchases appropriately.
Let’s start by emphasising that the SS24 collections conveyed a clear message: get ready for the most daring Hollywood styles to make their way into the mainstream. As the nude dress went from being exclusive to the red carpet, so too has the current celebrity-favourite trend of eschewing trousers finding their way into regular clothing. Don’t worry, though, if you’re not quite ready to face the new year dressed like Look Ma, no trousers! A lot of the best-selling items from 2023, such as maxi skirts, office-appropriate attire, and virtually everything in the area of hidden wealth, will return in the new year with a unique twist.
2024 Fashion Trends: No-Pants Look

Although a few designers (Miu Miu, Loewe) have dabbled in the no-pants trend in recent seasons, which has since been enthusiastically embraced by the Jenners, Biebers, and Hadids of the fashion world, the SS24 shows have officially declared that the take-off-your-pants trend is about to, well, take off. It is simpler to identify the designers—which include Marni, Schiaparelli, Dries Van Noten, and LaQuan Smith—who did not feature heavily bare legs on their runways than to list the ones who did. The hottest way to accessorize your lower body in 2024 will be to wear nothing at all—instead, go for short shorts and exposed knickers with flimsy or vibrant tights underneath.
Fashion Trends 2024: Florals

Hollywood history claims that florals are unquestionably nothing revolutionary, but the same cannot be said of floral fabrics. When it comes to flowers, designers are moving away from flowery motifs and towards something much more dramatic. Examples of this include the enormous embroidery cutouts at Valentino, the multidimensional floral breast pieces at Loewe, the knitted rosettes at Alexander McQueen, and the real pink roses stuffed inside sheer garments at Simone Rocha. Make sure your petals don’t just follow a flat pattern this year, no matter how you parade them around.
2024 Fashion Trends: Not-So-Winter White

Given that Valentino has emerged as the unofficial colour expert since 2022—when it boldly endorsed hot pink—we looked to Pierpaolo Piccioli’s runway once more to gauge the hue the fashion house is embracing for the coming year. Our results were as striking as the hue white itself. We are not referring to the winter-associated eggshell whites that are ivory and greyed out. This is the kind of brilliant, unquestionably white Husband shirt that Meghan Markle would approve of and that you can’t wear after Labour Day. In addition, several designers are supporting the colour with crisp blazers (Brandon Maxwell), denim (Sergio Hudson), and flowy gowns and blouses (Victoria Beckham, Chloé, Courrèges). Maisie Wilen and LaPointe are using it on shoes in the interim.
Fashion Trend 2024: The Luxury Jumpsuit
One of the most popular items from 2023’s utilitarian style is being borrowed by the quiet luxury movement, which is based on ultra-minimalist designs and subdued colour palettes to create an opulent appearance. Isabel Marant, Saint Laurent, Carolina Herrera, Hermès, and other high-end designers are giving the classic jumpsuit a stylish makeover. Anticipate this understated item to make subtly elegant jumps in the upcoming year.
Fashion Trend 2024: Ankle Action
Even if décollétes were seen at Dior, Altuzarra, and other fashion shows, straps are still in style despite the growing trend of strapless gowns. This season’s shoulder fastening material appears to have been used elsewhere, mostly around the ankles. Salvatore Ferragamo, Collina Strada, Molly Goddard, and Burberry all displayed flats and strapped Mary Janes, while Fendi and Miu Miu accessorised their pumps and sandals with anklets. Higher-rising socks at Proenza Schouler and The Row were among the other ankle-related trends seen on the runways.
Fashion Trend 2024: Short Suits
If you like office-core fashion this autumn, get ready for the short suit, a springtime version of the trend. The 2024 fashion trends at Chanel, Maison Margiela, Givenchy, Coperni, and Staud are convincingly endorsing the professional-ish appearance with blazers worn with tailored shorts. Wearers who mean business without taking themselves too seriously are typified by the bossy yet lighthearted look of the short suit. Although we advise against following the aforementioned pantless trend to your next Monday morning meeting, we do believe that business suits will have a lot of shorts, but more of a Bermuda style.
Fashion Trend 2024: Track Star Style
Higher education is high fashion, if the profusion of preppy polos and rugby shirts by the best names in the game (think Louis Vuitton, Gucci, The Row, and Miu Miu to mention a few) tells us anything. If you look like you have an athletic scholarship underneath that popped collar, you’ll kill your 2024 style, whether it’s windbreakers and hoodies from Dion Lee or tracksuits from Coperni. Pro tip: Take this one and don’t be scared to borrow from the boys.
Fashion Trend 2024: Full Skirts
The huge maxi skirt style of 2023 has returned, and although longer hemlines are still very much in, we’re seeing a lot more volume in below-the-knee bottoms. Y2K-inspired denim fabrics and slinky fits will give way to ball gown silhouettes and longer skirts, a Molly Goddard trademark. Designers like Staud and Bottega Veneta predict this trend. To emphasise its “cheerleader full-circle skirt” style, Batsheva even employed an antiquated hoop technique.
